March of Dimes


Zeta Prematurity Awareness Program (ZPAP)

 ZPAP serves as our Sorority’s effort to support the March of Dimes in their Prematurity Awareness Month® campaign by targeting our community’s religious congregations. Since adopting this as a project in 2003, Zetas, Zeta Amicae and Zeta youth auxiliaries have impacted the lives of well over 1.2 million men, women and children in more than 39 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and abroad. During ZPAP, a religious leader, a designated congregation member, or a member of the Zeta family shares information with the congregation about prematurity.

Celebrating 46 Years of an Amazing Partnership

Since 1972, the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority and March of Dimes partnership has been impactful and successful. By joining forces to conduct prematurity awareness activities in houses of worship and congregations, worshipers learn more about the infant health crisis that nearly half a million families cope with each year. This year marks the 16th consecutive year of Zeta’s participation by leading this nationwide grassroots campaign.

March for Babies Campaign

When our members walk in M4B, we give hope to the more than half a million babies born to soon each year. The money raised for this annual national fundraiser supports programs in our communities that help mothers have healthy, full-term pregnancies and funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten babies everywhere. March of Dimes (MOD) has been hosting walk events since 1970 and has raised an incredible $2.5 billion to benefit all babies.
